Tomie dePaola!

Saturday, November 18th, 2017, 2 p.m.

Join Gibson's Bookstore for an afternoon chat and book signing with Tomie dePaola! Gibson's is blessed to have a national treasure such as Tomie dePaola live nearby, and we're thrilled that he is coming back for another visit. Have you or your child ever had a burning question that you wanted to ask this legendary author/illustrator? We'll have a Q&A and chat, and then Tomie will sign any of his titles for you (are you planning for holiday gifts yet?).

Over 15 million copies of his books have sold worldwide, and he is one of the only people to have received both the Caldecott Honor Award (Strega Nona) and the Newbery Honor Award (26 Fairmount Avenue).
